4* NCAAB Letdown Game of the Week on Youngstown State pk
Off a big upset win at Cleveland State, expect Valpo to fall flat on its face this evening. Youngstown State has been no pushover in the Horizon League at 8-6 and it has been strong at home at 7-3. Still, I expect the Crusaders to get caught overlooking a team they defeated by 14 last month and 14 straight times overall.
In addition, Valpo is expected to be without Kevin Van Wijk, who is second on the team with 14.5 points and 5.2 rebounds. He was huge in the first meeting, leading the Crusaders with 23 points. The team will really miss his presence.
Valpo is 2-10 ATS in road games after a win by 10 points or more over the last 2 seasons, losing by an average score of 74.3 to 65.0 in this situation. Take Youngstown.
